Bobby Jindal, six weeks into his term as governor of Louisiana has started his reforms. The watchwords are ethics and transparency and almost no one thought he could do it, but he has. This fellow is worth keeping an eye on.
Having lived in Louisiana, I can attest that it is going to take alot more than Bobby Jindal to clean up that state. It is a culture of corruption and deal making. Every level, down to the most minor office and officer, has had this culture habituized.
It is much more likely Jindal will be broken than the state of Lousiana. IF Jindal is a conservative of the future, let's hope he gets out of Louisiana politics as soon as possible...
ok, Christopher: McCain-Jindal?

I have heard of this one. Of course this is more of a "let's structure a deal to improve the chances of GOP" rather than "let's govern on conservative principles" so as much respect as I have for Jindal (I voted for him enthusiastically when he was a house member) I would not support this ticket as McCain's name is first...;)
It is a problem is it not? I mean, you could resurrect Reagan, Burke, or Jesus himself, put them on a ticket with McCain and it still does not make McCain something he is not…
This morning I was at a meeting wherein a lawyer was explaining Ohio's new "Honesty in Government" rules on lobbying. They are so stringent, and yet not; so confining, and yet vague, it makes one absolutely pity lobbyists. That is quite a remarkable achievement. I hope Lousiana's bill makes better sense.
